Published by Candlewick Press

When an entire community reads the same book, it becomes a point of reference for all. Conversation is sparked between students and teachers, children and parents, librarians and patrons, booksellers and book lovers. Reading becomes a means to be a part of that conversation.

Synopsis
 At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to fnd a monster outside hisbedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’sbeen expecting — he’s been expecting the one romhis nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. Themonster in his backyard is dierent. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something rom Conor.Something terrible and dangerous. It wants thetruth. From the fnal idea o award-winningauthor Siobhan Dowd — whose premature deathrom cancer prevented her rom writing it hersel —Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly unny novel o mischie, loss, and monsters bothreal and imagined.
